Why Most Meetings Suck
In this episode, we're going to talk a little bit about meetings. Meetings are one of those things that, just by their nature, people think that they're inherently bad... and that if you have too many meetings it means that meetings are useless, and if you could have ZERO meetings then everything would be great. I'm here to tell you that, when it comes down to it, a belief like that is naive and idiotic. If you follow along in this episode, I'll go into the aspects of meetings -- in the execution, the intent, the desired outcomes -- where the REAL problems are that lead to meetings that you find to be boring, ineffective, and useless.

Ep. 19: Matthew Bede Murphy & the artists of LAND Gallery
Beyond + Back Podcast
LAND Studio & Gallery is a unique nonprofit day habilitation program that teaches life skills through the modality of art. Located in Brooklyn, NY, LAND was founded in 2005 and serves 16 adult artists with developmental disabilities. I spoke with six of the artists at LAND before visiting the co-founder Matthew Bede Murphy at his home in Brooklyn. This is an episode for close listening.  In my conversation with Matthew, we discuss how art can have a role in our discovery of Self. He shares his struggles in understanding his own identity as a young gay man, and how art therapy helped him to know his whole self. Trigger warning, there is a very brief mention of suicidal thoughts, but the bulk of our discussion explores the healing potential of having a creative practice and a safe space to express yourself. I’m so grateful for Matthew’s candor and inspired by his empathy, and I was truly honored to visit with these six artists at LAND: Rudy Bansraj, Michael Pellew, Kenya Hanley, Stephon Bryce, Robert Lachman and Myasia Dowdell. I’m so grateful for Matthew’s openness in sharing his metamorphosis as a natural art child who had a long journey to meet his destiny as a free thinker.  I’m inspired by how he survived his own traumatic struggles with identity, to continue on to create a safe space for sixteen artists to be exactly who they are.

Interview With The Vampire (1994)
Horror Queers
With the start of November's cold weather, Trace and Joe head south to Mississippi to visit our favorite bickering gay couple: Louis and Lestat and their ADORABLE adopted daughter, Claudia. That's right, we're back in vampire territory as we tackle Neil Jordan's infamous adaptation of the iconic first novel in Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles just in time for its 25th anniversary! This movie is super duper gay (for 1994). The boys ponder the film's weird development cycle, including bizarre casting decisions (Julian Sands? Cher?!), question whether Rice ruffled studio feathers and lament Pitt's snooze-inducing performance. Joe and Trace bat heads over Cruise, but both are head over heels for Kirsten Dunst, which inspires a lengthy diatribe about her lack of recognition! Also up for discussion: Trace's dislike of long hair on men, the "Britishness" of Stephen Rea, prostitute tits, Letterboxd reviews of the Theatre des Vampires, and the real reason that Louis is so appealing (a HUGE dick). In this week's game: what would your vampiric "dark gift" be? Questions? Comments? Snark?

#093: How to Grow Enormous Facebook and Instagram Pages in Two Years
The Blogger Genius Podcast
Have you heard that blogging is dead? Or that regular folks can’t build large social media followings anymore?  Well, today’s guest on the podcast is a blogger and entrepreneur who has proved what can be done quickly -- in under two years -- with some hard work and a belief in herself.  Andrea Scalzo Yi is the owner and content creator of the blog, Raising Dragons.  Andrea creates STEAM/STEM projects for kids and makes videos of her 4 sons completing them.  And she has built her entire business very quickly, in under two years. So we are going to talk about how she did it, and where she plans to take the business in the future.  Beginnings a Blog by Making Videos for Facebook After working in retail her whole adult life, when Andrea began staying at home with her 4 young sons, she was at a loss as to how to fill her time. She knew she enjoyed design, she had a degree in engineering, and she loved art. So she began creating projects to work on with her sons. She considered starting a blog because she had a friend making a full-time income blogging, but she wasn't a natural writer, and so she wasn’t sure she could make it work. But one thing she did enjoy was making videos. And so, in 2017, Andrea bought the domain, Raising Dragons.   And instead of blogging, Andrea began posting 1-minute videos on Facebook of her sons doing the projects. These videos had no sound and were really meant for the busy parent who was scrolling and looking for something simple to do with her kids.  Viral Facebook Videos As Andrea began adding more and more of her videos, Facebook began sharing them to more and more people.  Friends and family were sharing them, as well, and before long, she had a video go viral. She kept creating videos in the same style, and as of today, she has had over 20 videos go viral. One of her viral videos has over 30 million views on Facebook.  At the same time, she was posting her videos on her blog, but she didn’t even know what SEO was. So, each blog post was just the video, a short paragraph on how to do the project, and that was it. What Andrea did was build an audience with her videos and then she began to find out how to best serve that audience. Utilizing Social Media Because the algorithms change on social media platforms all the time, bloggers have to be ready to make adjustments. But Andrea tries to stay true to her original form of content by creating and releasing 1-2 new videos each week. Since Pinterest recently allowed video content, Andrea uploaded all of her content to her Pinterest account.  Andrea is also working to grow her Instagram account (using MiloTree!) because brands are more interested in IG, and want to see an active presence and audience engagement there before they work with you.  How to Monetize Your Social Media Accounts Andrea’s prime revenue source is sponsored content, but she only promotes brands that fit in with her STEAM content.  Andrea likes to work with smaller brands that are just getting started. She does have a business partner who helps her with the business side of marketing and brand contracts.  Brands can get different packages when working with Andrea, from a simple blog post to across the board social media marketing.  To monetize, she also takes advantage of Amazon’s affiliate program, as well.  Running a Business from Your Phone  One of the things I was most interested in talking to Andrea about was going from “end-to-end” on her phone. She basically runs her entire business from her phone. and I’m not so great at that.  To shoot her videos, Andrea uses a sunroom in her house that gets great light. Lighting is everything when it comes to video, and this room has plenty of windows.  She tries to keep activities set up in the room so that when her son wants to work on something, she can film it for content.  Andrea cuts the volume from most of her videos, adds music, and keeps them close to one minute.  When posting her videos, Andrea puts a branded watermark in the bottom corner of her videos.  Andrea’s Team  Andrea is truly a one-woman show.  She has her partner that helps her interface with brands and has used a contractor to rewrite some of her blog posts for SEO purposes.  Otherwise, she runs her business all on her own.  Thoughts on YouTube  Andrea posts her videos on YouTube but she isn’t currently monetizing them on there.  Andrea believes that her videos aren’t the best for YouTube because they are very short, do not have volume, and are designed for the busy parent.  Andrea caters to the busy mom scrolling through her social media and wants to see something inspiring. She does not cater to the person wants to dig into the meat of her projects on YouTube.  Take note - it’s perfectly okay to figure out what works for you and then jump into that. You do not need to be doing amazingly well in every single area or do everything that everybody else is doing. Blogger Burnout  Andrea has been experiencing burnout this year. Writing her book, figuring out the marketing plan for it, and creating more content for her blog, all on top of creating new video content has been a lot to manage.  So, she scaled her videos back to once a week and she’s also batching the video work.  It is okay to recognize that your business is in a new season and to change things up to reinvigorate yourself.  Andrea’s Book  At the beginning of 2018, Andrea made the goal to write a book, which became 100 Easy STEAM Activities.  Andrea submitted her idea to PageStreet Publishing and they told her they were interested, but wanted to go for 100 projects instead of the 40 she had suggested.  The publisher covered the photography since Andrea’s strong suit is making video. But the photographers worked with Andrea to make sure it was in her style and fit her ideas.  Andrea’s Advice  If you’re a blogger still trying to figure out the landscape of blogging, and how to grow your blog into a business like Andrea, she suggests you start by focusing on providing value to your audience. Andrea feels like what has served her well is giving people exactly what they want and how they want it, without worrying about monetizing. You can focus on monetizing in the future, once you know what best serves your audience.  Andrea completely focused on putting out content for two years; that was her sole focus. The money and audience grew from that.  I’m so impressed with what Andrea has built with her business. She has built her audience by serving them exactly what they want and in the style they want it, which is short and sweet videos.  This is Andrea’s first foray into entrepreneurship and she’s having a blast.

Parenting School-Aged Kids
The Top Knot Squad
On today’s episode, we’ll be talking about Parenting School Age Children. Between the ages of 5 and 12, children expand their horizons and spend more time away from their parents. It can be tough to see your child go from baby to child – going to school, making friends, and learning more about the world. It’s an exciting time in your child’s development, but can also come with a multitude of stressors as both you and your child learn to navigate new systems, routines, and relationships, not to mention concerns about inclusion, bullying, violence, sex ed, and more. We are thrilled to have Dr. Eboni Lunsford Calbow join us for today's conversation and hopefully provide us with some tips and tricks on surviving the journey through the school years. Eboni Lunsford Calbow, LCSW, PhD, is a clinical assistant professor in the Steve Hicks School of Social Work at The University of Texas at Austin. Her current research and teaching interests include school social work, trauma informed care and intervention, educational equity and social justice, multidisciplinary and collaborative practice, and evidence-based interventions for children with disabilities. Prior to teaching full time at the Steve Hicks School of Social Work, Calbow was a school social worker for almost a decade, working with over twenty school campuses in Austin ISD. She has experience working with children and adolescents ages 3-22 and is a Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) Practitioner. Her professional practice covered topics like trauma informed intervention, culturally responsive practice, drop-out prevention, sociocultural influences on academic progress, school ethics, crisis and critical incidents, non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI), and suicide prevention and intervention.

5 – Know Your Counselor
Your Truth Revealed podcast
Episode 5 is the first part of an interview with Sharon Bien, MA, LPC about counseling. Having a relationship with a counselor can help you overcome personal challenges and be empowered with Erika Marcoux, MA. Sharon has a masters degree in counseling from St. Edwards University in Austin. As a licensed professional counselor with a private practice, she is trained in CBT, cognitive behavioral therapy, and EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. She has also worked as a social worker in schools, foster care, and homeless outreach. Subscribe to YOUR TRUTH REVEALED weekly videos on YouTube – ➤RESOURCES Free Worksheet: A New View Counseling: Store: ➤ SUMMARY What is Counseling? Counseling psychology specifically focuses on how you function personally, meaning as an individual, and how you function in your relationships with other people. In the 1960s, an American psychologist named Carl Rogers helped shape counseling. It addresses issues that include emotional issues, social issues, problems at work and school, and physical health. Overall, it helps people improve your overall sense of well-being. What are 5 common myths about counseling? Seeking counseling is a sign of weakness. The truth is that seeking counseling is a way to proactively manage your problems. Counselors will try to put you on medication. The truth is they don’t prescribe medication. Counselors work with psychiatrists, who are medical doctors, when creating collaborative treatment plans for clients who do take medication. Mental health issues are not real problems and counselors are not effective. The truth is that mental health issues are real problems—1 in 5 people are impacted by mental health issues every single day. Counselors can address these problems and help clients find relief. Counseling is a quick fix for all your problems. The truth is that strengthening your brain through counseling is like strengthening your body through exercise. It takes time, practice, patience, and persistence. If you go to counseling, you will be judged negatively. Going into counseling shows that you are willing to learn about yourself and ways to improve your life. It takes courage to contact a counselor. They do not judge their clients—counselors welcome you. What is a typical counseling session like? The session is a place where you can find a new perspective about something with which you’re struggling. You can share your situation and your feelings about it, and then get your counselors perspective from a professional standpoint. Counseling is a cooperative exploration and problem-solving process aimed at reducing distress, improving your relationships, and helping you achieve your goals. Some counselors take notes to mark down something important that you said. It’s a different kind of conversation and you would typically have with most other people. Your counselor may even give you homework to do between sessions. This may include taking action steps towards reaching your goal. What is attachment theory and why is it important? It’s a model that describes the dynamics of interpersonal relationships between people. Secure attachment occurs when you can rely on someone to attend to your needs of emotional support and protection. It’s the most advantageous attachment style. Anxious-ambivalent attachment occurs when you feel anxious when separated from someone and don’t feel reassured when they return. Anxious-avoidant attachment occurs when you avoid someone close to you. Disorganized attachment occurs when when you lack the ability to attach to someone. What is the best advice for finding a counselor? Step 1: Think about who you need If you are looking for someone to talk to, then look for a counselor. If you want someone to prescribe medication, then look for a psychiatrist. Most people treating a mental health condition need at least two professionals, a counselor and a psychiatrist. Get a physical exam to address your biology.   Step 2: Gather referrals If you have health insurance, call your provider. Get at least 3 names and numbers. You can also try Step 3: Make the call If you’re reluctant to call, ask a friend or family member to call for you. Make an appointment. Step 4: Ask questions In your first visit with a counselor, you’re seeking advice and you’re “shopping around.” It’s reasonable to ask questions. Be honest. Step 5: Build a Relationship Sometimes the first person you visit might not “feel right.” With a little persistence, you’ll find the right person for you. ➤CONNECT WITH ME All Episodes: Podcast: Instagram: Facebook: Business Inquiries: ➤ABOUT YOUR TRUTH REVEALED video podcast.

This Song: Matt and Kim
This Song – KUTX
Indie electronic duo Matt and Kim talk about how “The Mullet Burden” by The Dillinger Escape Plan showed them how intense music could be. Matt: “I did not even realize that music could be as extreme as that was. Like if I thought that music could be turned up to 10 , it was like, oh wait, you could actually turn up to 12 — there’s like 2 more notches on this thing that I didn’t even know existed.” The couple also explores how they’ve tried to bring that same kind of intensity to their music, especially their live shows, the toll that intensity has taken on their bodies and what they see as the next phase in their musical lives. : Caleb Kuhl Listen to This Episode of This Song Matt and Kim are on tour celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their record Grand.

Episode 25 Lindsey Cunningham
Spoken Freely Podcast
The leaves are changing and falling, the air is icy cold, hot chocolate made with salted caramel (and oatmilk) is my new fave, my birthday and favorite holiday are fast approaching, and I have a heartfelt conversation with today's guest to share with you! What could be better?   I first learned of Lindsey Cunningham from her personal ministry on Instagram, @confessionsofapastorswife. A gifted writer, wife, mom, and church planter in South Carolina, Lindsey shares words of encouragement and hope to those weighted down by the heavy things of life.   We talk about the real truth of starting a church from scratch and the raw reality of running ragged while wearing all the hats. Lindsey describes the battle to resist comparison between mega church success and the small start-up experience.    Having walked a journey of pain from hurtful words and betrayal from serving at a church previously, we dig in to what living life in a glass house of a ministry role can be. Lindsey shares wisdom that every listener can use no matter their circumstances-release and let go. Hanging on to the residue of another's words can be destructive and God desires that we seek his truth; not someone else's thoughts.   Grab a blanket and a mug (or hop on the treadmill if you must!) and enjoy today's show!
